Re: Random pause time

If you want for a pause that last a random amount of time...

Code: Select all

    $ dice=renpy.random.randint(1,10)
    $ renpy.pause(dice,hard=True)
In this case, pause last from 1 to 10 seconds (broadly, it's never so precise). If you want for the player to click and skip the pause, remove the hard=True part.

Re: Chapter Selection help

Re: Best engine for a sim game

Turn based like Tokimemo : ren'py. If you like me eviscerate the Konami game intricacy, a procedural approach is far much better. But it require for you a very savvy use of logic and a robust python knowledge, at least standard methods, as renpy alone can't manage that. Dinamyc game (like rpg): any ...

Re: Minigame Popup

You mean a minigame that play when the normal story proceed.
It's quite hard. You need to show a screen that, thru functions, include all possible interactions. You can't jump to any script label.

Side images. They are tied to the character speaking.

Re: IgnoreLayers error when exiting the game during custom screen

Style statements, my friend.

The way you're declaring them is wrong. They need to be at init level, not inside the screen definition.

Re: Using a variable in a different script file

Obviously, as you set that persistent twice, and each time renpy load the options restore to True. Persistent have a special property, is set to None if not defined. So change your game this way # at the end of the game $ persistent.var = True # in the MAIN MENU SCREEN, not in configs if persistent....

Re: renpy.input adding character name gives syntax error

Input get a string as a prompt, not a speaker line.
That's a limit you can't bypass. You can try to cheat the system by showing that name directly (with a fake name box if needed).

Re: 'if not' label

You can just use a variable to register if the player had seen the label, if he does jump to another. default seen =False label example: if seen == True: jump elsewhere e "Salut!" $ seen = True This example label is executed only the first time, all further times jump instead to "elsewhere"
